Three Ways to Use Your Ceiling Fan in Your Phoenix Home

While many homes are equipped with ceiling fans, improper operation can actually increase your energy bill. The problem is that many individuals do not know how they should be operated to provide the greatest potential energy savings.

One of the most important things to know is that ceiling fans do no cool rooms but they can cool your body. The concept is actually simple. The movement of air causes water to evaporate from the skin sooner than when sitting in a room where air is not moving. However, moving the air in a room does not cause any cooling. Because the fan motor generates heat as it operates, ceiling fans cause a slight increase in room temperature or increase the air conditioning load. However, the cooling of the breeze on your body is typically worth the increase.

1.       Turn off the AC when a fan is sufficient. On mild days, a ceiling fan provides enough air movement to keep the body comfortable. Ceiling fans consume 97 percent less electricity than an air conditioner, making their use an obvious technique to save energy.

2.       Turn the AC thermostat to a higher setting. The natural cooling of the fan can make your body feel up to four degrees cooler than sitting in still air. In Phoenix, the difference between 90 degree and 86 degress is significant, in terms of personal comfort.  Ceiling fans give your air conditioning (and pocketbook) a much needed break during the beautiful weather of spring and fall in Phoenix.

3.       Another tip, Do not operate fans in unoccupied rooms. If the room is empty, the fan is doing absolutely no good. If no one is there to feel the fan operating at full speed and the room is unoccupied, it is just increasing the electric bill without providing any benefits.

If you leave ceiling fans operating in the home, even when rooms are occupied and do not change the operation of the AC system, you simply increase your utility costs. However, using these three tactics is a proven way to lower your power bill by as much as 15 percent.

Scott came by today to perform routine maintenance on our air conditioners. He discovered one of the capacitors to be failing & was able to replace it quickly & efficiently. Now I can get through the summer without worries. Thanks Scott!

Hello, just a little note to tell you how great our Technicians were today.Ivan and Troy showed up a little ahead of schedule, met with us, checked out the work areas and got right to work. And they did a fantastic job! I thought I was going to hear all kinds of banging and all kinds of noise but instead it was just a little bit of noise and the cool sound of Ivan whistling... reminded me of my Dad, he always whistled to, it was great.Troy was also quietly working outside.Upon completion of the work Troy and Ivan showed us their work and how the new thermostat worked.They did a great job with the installation, very professional work! I've seen a few air conditioning/furnace installations over the years when building homes with my dad and cousin...and these two technicians (Ivan and Troy) are obviously very good at what they do, and very good with the customer service experience they exhibited to us!!And personally I think they both definitely deserve a raise!!! And no, they didn't ask me to say this, LOL. It's obvious they're humble guys that would never ask for something like this, but they definitely deserve a raise...at minimum some fantastic kudos to some great Hobiaca Technicians!Kudos to Ivan and Troy for a job very well done!Thank you,Jack and Jackie Guzman11/11/2021
